So, I'm a published children's book illustrator now! What what! For the last two months I've been working on a series of 9 ink and colored pencil drawings for a children's book. The book is basically about a brother and sister and how their imaginations turn their house and pets into a fantastical, imaginary jungle. Until the adults enter the scene, and *poof* the beautiful imaginary island is gone. All too true right?
I had a lot of fun working on this, it was my first time collaborating with a writer so it was interesting to learn how that process worked. It was also different for me drawing the characters so many times and remaining consistent with their appearances. I had a lot of freedom with my concept and composition so I really got to explore my own idea of what an imaginary jungle would look like, which was super cool. I hope to continue illustration in the future! Only 25 copies of the book will be available for purchase soon so I'll keep you all updated on that.
This is the place where I post current works, upcoming shows, inspirations, and general thoughts about art.
